Painted Fiber Art Journal Covers

This class introduces quilt batting as a substrate.  We will paint, alter, embroider, and sew the batting, creating a cool one of a kind journal cover.

The morning will be spent creating the journal base with batting and stitching (both machine and hand). In the afternoon color will be added with a variety of mediums and embellishment.  You do not need to be an expert at embroidery to take this class,  I like to call it mixed media style embroidery.

We will turn this batting into a beautiful, one of a kind, journal cover.

Want to Win a Handmade Journal and a Copy of My Book?

Writing books and magazines articles,  requires making a model of the project as an example.  Sometimes it also requires step-outs (projects in various stages of completion).   I have LOTS of models and step-outs and would like to share some of them with you.

I love February for many reasons.  Living in northern Illinois I like to think ahead to March, and spring being right around the corner.  It is also my birthday month and last year was a big number  for me.  One that  I was not looking forward to celebrating.   THIS year, I am very excited about my birthday, and would like to share my happiness with  all of you.  What better way then a giveaway!
